AGNIHOTRA MATERIAL REQUIRED


Timesheet exact in seconds of sunrise and sunset Copper pyramid Ingredients are: Cows Ghee Brown rice Dried cow dung Vibration inputs in the form of mantras
7 May 2012 20

Why the pyramid and why copper ?


Inverted pyramid pot is considered a receiver of cosmic energy Tremendous amounts of energy (subtle, cosmic, and electromagnetic) are gathered around the copper pyramid just at Agnihotra time During the burning, the pyramids shape and copper material act like a generator producing negative ions, harmonizing the environment. In Yugoslavia, after the Chernobyl catastrophe, scientists conducted the Agnihotra ceremony and found that radioactivity 7 May 2012 21 was completely neutralized in the immediate vicinity.

Why the pyramid and why copper ? Shape - accumulates inside the pyramid electromagnetic waves or cosmic waves Pyramid - in Greek pyr means FIRE and amid means CENTRE Copper - best conductor of heat and electromagnetic waves that allows control generation and multidirectional dissipation of energy It receives generates and decentralizes electrosphere It acts as an effective bacteriostatic and antimicrobial reactor
7 May 2012 22

Why the cow dung?


Fresh and burnt cow dung (fumes and ash) contain active medicinal properties
Proven to eradicate harmful bacteria and control dangerous effects of RADIOACTIVITY
7 May 2012 23

Why the ghee and rice (offerings) ?


Cows ghee or clarified butter referred to as the mother of all medicine and has many therapeutic properties full of nutritional properties Does not get destroyed by burning but gets transmuted into healing gases Its fume lessen the effect of atomic radiation
7 May 2012

24

The Mantras
Original words in Sanskrit Sanskrit - mother of all languages but nobodys mother-tongue Each verse is a precise formula, which carries the directions, the forces, and the illumination required for the work
7 May 2012 25

Why Sunrise and Sunset ?


These are transitional moments (neither day nor night) A powerful stream of healing (vital life sustaining) energies similar in power to an atom bomb covers the earth at this time At sunrise the many fires, electricities, ethers and more subtle energies emanating from the sun extend all the way to the earth and produce a flood effect. Scientific investigation at stone circles in England- the Dragon Project- reveal interesting energy patterns at these times. At sunset theflood recedes.

7 May 2012

26

Why Sunrise and Sunset ?

Through Agnihotra this energy is brought down or attracted to the earth An aura energy field is also created on the ground at the exact timing

7 May 2012

Sunrise/sunset timings according to the towns latitude and longitude


27

The Mantras

At Sunrise: Suryaya Svaha*. Suryaya Idam Na Mama


(*Release the first portion of rice smeared with cows ghee in the fire)

Prajapataye Svaha*. Prajapataye Idam Na Mama


(*Release the second portion of rice smeared with cows ghee in the fire) This completes the morning (sunrise) 7 May 2012 Agnihotra.

28

The Mantras

At Sunset: Agnaye Svaha*. Agnaye Idam Na Mama


(*Release the first portion of rice smeared with cows ghee in the fire)

Prajapataye Svaha*. Prajapataye Idam Na Mama


(*Release the second portion of rice smeared with cows ghee in the fire) This completes the evening (sunset) 7 May 2012 Agnihotra.

29

Process of Agnihotra
Place cow dung in the copper pyramid in such a way that air circulates freely Use cow ghee or kapoor to enlighten the Agnihotra fire Give offering of brown rice with mantras Little wood may be used for initial lighting of fire

Scientific Dimensions
1.Cleans air - within and outside the Room 2.Most ancient science to fight air pollution 3.Fire breaks up the substances into vapor/ gaseous phase,( Sublimation) 4.Producing buoyancy and other aerodynamic effects 5.a mechanism to clean indoor outdoor air
7 May 2012 31

Why burning and fire?


Fire is transformational
changes state of matter

Fumes, smoke or vapors from the

burning components rise high up in space.

Gathers nutritional properties Makes the pyramid vibrate and


Pamela G. Fernandez release energyAgronomy, UPLBDept. of 18 June 2007 32

Fire
Scientific method of subtulisation of matter into energy and expanding its potential effects in the surrounding atmosphere. Fire breaks up molecule-to-molecule bonds of the sacrificed substances rather than triggering their independent combustion process The electromagnetic waves generated thereby help in transmitting, at cosmic level, the desired sonic signals stored in the Mantras, which are chanted during the process of offering materials in the fire. 7 May 2012 33

Agnihotra and combustion science


Essentials of Combustion Combustion is said to occur if a fuel is oxidized (generally by the atmospheric oxygen) giving rise to thermal energy Thermal heat is produced that was inherent in the particular fuel. Some fuels like fossil fuels petrol ,coal etc release much more energy than others
7 May 2012 34

Combustion.. Fossil Fuels


Thermal energy -called Calorific Value- of fossil fuels is in the range of 10,000 calories / gram of fuel,
Upon combustion of such fuels the final temperatures may be as high as 2500 degree Celsius

7 May 2012

35

Combustion cellulose materials


Fuels such as cellulose materials & wood have smaller calorific values. Typical firewood - calorific value around 3000 calories / gram of fuel about one-third of the hydrocarbon fuels. Upon combustion, maximum temperatures may be in the range of 800 1200 degree Celsius.

Medicinal values of wood used


All these types of wood apart from having low calorific value have medicinal properties also. Medicinal properties - well documented in several scientific books on Medicinal plants produces medicinal substances to help us get rid of common diseases
7 May 2012 38

Combustion Harmful effects


Upon complete combustion, we expect formation of carbon dioxide and water vapor as the products Due to the deficiency in the availability of oxygen, or other possible reasons, some fuel remains un burnt, or gets only partially oxidized to carbon monoxide.

7 May 2012

39

Combustion Harmful effects


Un burnt fuel and carbon monoxide are undesirable pollutants for the atmosphere If the combustion gives rise to high temp --2000 deg. C or above - the atmospheric N2 & O2 may react to form the oxides of nitrogen undesirable pollutants. Excessive volumes of CO2 are also undesirable
7 May 2012 40

Combustion in Agnihotra
Agnihotra consists of a base fire generated in a specially designed vessel Burning firewood of certain specified characteristics forms the base fire. Firewood has much lower calorific value. and produces much lower temperatures than in the typical engines.
7 May 2012 41

Combustion in Agnihotra
To this base fire,we add oblations comprising: Ghee (ghritam) Several herbal substances which should be 1) wholesome, i.e. health givers, 2) anti-bacterial, 3) aroma-builders, i.e. deodorants and 4) sweeteners. Odoriferous Substances :saffron, musk, agar, tagar, chandan, illaychi, jayphal, javitri and camphor. Substances with Healthy Constituents:milk, fruits and cereals like wheat, rice,barley, til, kangu, munga, chana, arhar, masur or peas. Sweet Substances:sugar, dried grapes, honey or chhuhara.
7 May 2012 42

Agnihotra --Possible production of pollutants


The base fire is generated by burning firewood - lower calorific value Amount of firewood burnt is minimum This ensures lower temperatures oxides of nitrogen cannot be formed. Design of vessel ensures plenty of oxygen. Therefore Carbon monoxide & unburnt hydrocarbons are minimal
7 May 2012 43

Products of Combustion:
Interpretation is rather difficult due to the followingreasons: (i) The properties of substances which are used is vastly varying; (ii) The conditions under which combustion takes place remain unspecified. The products of combustion depend on the following factors like -- (a) The nature of substances used and their proportions; (b)Temperature attained; Controlled supply of air and (d) Interaction44 7 May 2012 amongst the various products formed.

When cellulose and other carbohydrates undergo combustion, steam is formed in copious quantities by the combination of hydrogen of organic substances with the oxygen.
This is how the substances like thymol, eugenol, pinene, terpinol etc., are carried over in the surroundings and the aroma of a

Agnihotra can be smelt even at a considerable distance.

In addition to steam, smoke is also given out in copious quantities and solid particles existing in a highly divided state offer sufficient surface for mechanical diffusion. Smoke also functions as colloidal particles for diffusion of volatile aromatic substances depending on temperature and direction of the wind.

7 May 2012

45

Combustion of Fatty Substances:


The fatty substances used are mainly ghee and other fatty
substances of vegetable origin.

Ghee helps in rapid combustion of cellulose of wood and keeps the


fire alight. All fatty substances used are combinations of fatty acids, which volatilise easily. The combustion of glycerol portion gives acetone bodies, pyruvic aldehyde and glyoxal etc. The hydrocarbons produced in the reactions again undergo slow combustion and as a result methyl and ethyl alcohols, formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, formic acid and acetic acids are formed.

These changes occur in the ultra-violet and other short wavelength regions. The products of fumigation go photochemical decomposition, oxidation and reduction. To some extent even CO2 is also reduced to formaldehyde as follows: CO2 + H2O + 112,000 cal. = HCHO = O2

Factors Affecting Photosynthesis


Red Effect - Rate of photosynthesis is maximum in red light Hence Photosynthesis is maximum in mornings and evenings when there is a red glow in the sky Thus, the air is richer with oxygen during morning and before sunset in the evening.

Biological Clocks and Agnihotra Timings


two most important transitional epochs of day changes of great magnitude take place in the ecosphere Synchronising performance of Agnihotra with these activated moments results in attracting a life sustaining energies of the solar system. The daily fluctuations in the body temperature, heart rate and blood pressure have been found associated with these exact moments. The science of Yoga and Nadi system observed to be greatly influenced these planetary transitional moments. The breathing patterns automatically undergo drastic changes. These physical changes and re-adjustments have great impact on the psychosomatic makeup of human beings.

Cowdung Cake:
Contains plenty of menthol, ammonia, phenol, indole compounds, formalin It eradicates the pathogenic micro-organisms. Fresh cowdung possesses medicinal and curative properties. It is a proven fact that tremendous active beneficial properties are inherent in the cowdung cake and in the fumes that emanates after burning it. Some Russian scientists have observed even antiradiational properties of cowdung.

7 May 2012

51

Offerings:
According to Ayurveda, Cows ghee is a tonic

and a cardiac stimulant. The invigorating gases produced by the burning of cows pure ghee act in balancing the cycle of

nature. Cows pure ghee removes all pathogenic bacteria and works effectively in purification of
the atmosphere making it sufficiently fit for mankind, plants and the life on earth.

Mantras and Dimensions of Sound

When a Mantra is chanted collectively during Agnihotra, its sonic power increases exponentialy due to --(i) the collision of the sound waves (generated by the Mantra chanting) with the thinnest screen flame-screen of the quivering fire of Agnihotra and the high frequency vibrations generated thereby; (ii) the subtle interactions of the sound-waves of the Mantras with the cosmic energy centre associated with their specific configurations (iii) the fundamental thermodynamic effects associated with the fumigation of t offerings in the Agnihotra fire; The sound-waves, of the Mantras, instead of proceeding in their natural circ motion, are carried upwards in a spiral form by the force of the electrons generated by fumigation of the substances after sublation in fire. The mutual collisions of these fast moving electrons along with the superimposition of the timely phased, collective sonic patterns of the Mantra result in the penetration in doubt of the ionosphere. The collective chanting of Mantras in specific rhythm in front of the flames g rise to unique sound-waves which have infinite radiant effects in the outer 7 May 53 space. 2012

Chanting of Mantras
The power of sound vibrations is long since acknowledged in the field of science.

These vibrations can penetrate the energy spheres at the subtle and cosmic levels. All alphabets of Sanskrit language are endowed with special vibrational powers, which set out harmonious wave patterns when pronounced.

Dr. Howard Steingull, an American Scientist has established that recitation o Gayatri Mantra produces 110,000 sound waves per second.

The patterns of chanting of Mantras are so designed that they latently conta the essence of the music or the quite essential sound of the torrent of life sustaining energies emanating from the cosmic energy centre of the corresponding Mantras. (The cosmic energy centre a diety associated with t 7 May 2012 54 Gayatri Mantra is Sun).

Experimental studies - the incidence of physical ailments,

sickness and disease are reduced in the houses, where the Agnihotra is regularly performed because it creates a pure, nutritional and medicinal atmosphere.
It renews the brain cells, revitalizes the skin, purifies blood

and prevents growth of pathogenic organisms.

Purification of environment through the constituent

electrons of the substances fumigated in the Yagna is an obvious effect of this process

7 May 2012

56

Dr. Hafkine --- mixing ghee and sugar and burning them creates

smoke which kills the germs of certain diseases and secretion takes place from some glands relate to the wind-pipe.
Sugars present in offerings have great power to purify the atmosphere.

It kills the germs of T.B., measles, smallpox and cow-pox --- remarks Prof..Tilward.
According to Dr. Shirowich, a Russian scientist ---

(i) Cows milk contains great power of protection from atomic radiation; (ii) Houses having cow-dung covered floors enjoy complete protection from atomic radiation; (iii) If cows ghee is put into Yagna fire, its fumes lessen the effect of atomic radiation to a great extent.

7 May 2012

57

The medicinal fumes emanating from Agnihotra have been

observed by researchers in the field of microbiology to be clearly bacteriolethal in nature.


These eradicate bacteria and other micro-organisms, which

are the root cause of illness and diseases. This must be the reason why the incidence of physical ailments, sickness and diseases becomes less in the households, where Agnihotra is regularly performed.
These effects take place in the four ways described as now:

7 May 2012

58

Removal of Foul Odours


Under steam volatalisation, the various volatile oils get diffused in
the surrounding atmosphere along with steam and smoke.

Since these oils have distinct good smell, the foul odours are
automatically replaced.

This aroma can be experienced due to diffusion of substances like


thymol, eugenol,pine, terpinol and oils of sandal-wood, camphor and clove.
7 May 2012 59

Removal of Bacteria
Products of combustion- the partial oxidation of hydrocarbons and
decomposition of complex organic substances produce formaldehyde which is a powerful antiseptic. Germicidal action of formaldehyde is only effective in the presence of water vapour which is also produced in large quantities in Agnihotra. The use of formaldehyde spray for disinfecting of walls, ceiling etc., is common and such a spray is automatically produced when Agnihotra is

performed.

The oxidation of hydrocarbons also produces formic acid and acetic acid
both of which are good disinfectants..

Agnihotra ash purifies and cleanses the water making it fit for drinking

7 May 2012

60

Removal of insects
There are non-bacterial parasites like flies, ringworm, dice, fleas etc., which are immune to bactericides, which are also harmful to other living beings. Such insects which are generally immune to ordinary reagents. They either get killed or are driven away, when they come in contact with the fumes of volatile oils like camphor diffused in the environment.

7 May 2012 61

Observations are made by Dr. L. Maela Anatoninhowska of Poland after


using P.S.I. techniques.

Agnihotra - process of slow combustion at higher temperature.


The burning of coal in factories or in the household fire - rapid combustion where oxygen is sucked in large quantities and enormous CO2 is emitted. In the slow combustion taking place in the process of Agnihotra, small quantity of O2 is utilised meagre CO2 is emitted that poses no threat to the environment. Whatever CO2 is generated it is readily absorbed by the surrounding vegetation and CO2 cycle is strengthened CO2 produced in Agnihotra is not always free CO2 but it remains mixed with other aromatic oils and antiseptic products. The use of CO2 as a cerebral stimulant to assist the patients suffering from lack of ventilation is common in medical world. Its use to control and cure many mental disorders is also known to medical science. Small amounts of CO2 inhaled by the persons performing Agnihotra acts as a stimulant and more and more aromatic fumes are inhaled which help in curing mental disorders. 7 May 2012 62

Air fresheners vs. Agnihotra


The commercially available air fresheners cannot purify the indoor air. Their purpose is very limited to reduce the undesirable foul odor, and even for that purpose their side effects have to be fully understood.

7 May 2012

63

It sublimates, vaporizes and slowly fumigates selected herbal offerings and nourishing elements Can Release manifold amounts of anti-bacterial and anti-viral phytochemicals in the surroundings through use of herbal medicines in fire of medicinal woods.

Removes Pollutants, Bacterias, Viruses etc Increases Immunity and vigor Can be used as inhalation therapy when combined with Pranayama

As Immunity Boost
A person with low immunity power is more susceptible to flu viruses Regular agnihotra helps in increasing of ones immunity.
Ayurvedic Medicines inhaled as vapors (much better than oral/intravenous delivery) Positive soothing vedic mantras

Agnihotra Absolute necessity


There is no other method to purify the air once that has been polluted by us. This requirement is of enormous proportion for the in-door air because that is what we breathe most of the time. Our life style of remaining in-doors is doing more and more harm to the environment. In the given circumstances, Agnihotra has become AN ABSOLUTE NECESSITY
7 May 2012 66

CONCLUSION
Agnihotra magnifies the advantages of the desirable herbal substances. The thermal and aerodynamic effects of the fire cause the vaporized substances to spread & diffuse into every part of the enclosed surroundings

7 May 2012

67

CONCLUSION
The overall temperatures in the combustion of firewood are lower Hence production of the oxides of nitrogen -safely ruled out. Design of Havan Kund -Supply of more than adequate oxygen No significant production of unburned hydrocarbon or carbon monoxide

Overall effect of Agnihotra

The desirable substances can be inhaled


through the nostrils by one and all.

Mechanism of inhaling as opposed to


intake through the mouth (liquid & solid ) is more efficient by a factor of several hundreds.

Also, it seems to be the only way to


cleanse the indoor air.

More information:
Scientists recently discovered that when plants grow in polluted conditions, their leaf veins change from their natural cylindrical shape to elliptical. This elliptical shape further reduces the uptake of atmospheric nutrients. In an area where Agnihotra is performed daily, the veins revert to their natural shape. Pathogenic bacteria are at their highest concentration at sunset, and practising Agnihotra at this time greatly reduces the amount of pathogens in the area of the fi re. The resultant ash has highly medicinal qualities for all of life. Much research has been, and still is, being carried out on this ancient practice, particularly by NASA and Monsanto, and on the properties of this ash. The Vedas state that all trace elements in perfect balance for life are found in the ash. Every element in the periodic table is found in the ash, as well as elements not in this table which have been found in meteorites that have landed on earth.

Agnihotra is called a super-science because, while much of what happens can be measured with instrumentation and the beneficial effects can be seen in the 7 Mayenvironment, not all of it is understood from a scientific perspective 2012

Researches on Agnihotra

A. Agnihotra and Kirlian photography:Structure of the chemical elements and their connection to molecules are restructured. These fine material changes during Agnihotra can be seen with the help of Kirlian photography. Kirlian Photographs of human hand 10 minutes before and 10 minutes after Agnihotra. After Agnihotra photograph showed increased energy with healing effect. Kirlian photographs of living Spearmint plant Before Agnihotra showed 'red surrounding 'Meaning aggressiveness. After Agnihotra photographs showed 'blue surrounding' meaning relaxation.

Decrease in Beta-wave activity after Agnihotra

Agnihotra and Neuro-Physiological


parameters:
At the Defense Institute of physiology and allied sciences (DIPAS) New Delhi, Dr. Selvamurthy (Sr. Scientist) studied the physiological effects of Agnihotra on the human mind and body.

During the performance of Agnihotra, the heart rate showed a declining trend, body temperature was raised, GSR remained significantly higher, ECG showed DC shift in base, EEG showed constant changes, power in Alpha band increased, while there was a tendency of suppression in delta power. It has been concluded that Agnihotra atmosphere has

distinct beneficial effects on mind and body.

7 May 2012

93

Bacteriostatic effect:In a series of experiments conducted by a group of microbiologists & pathologists under the guidance of Dr A.G. Mondkar and Shri.Y.B. Sohoni. The behavior of micro flora was studied in the atmosphere generated by Agnihotra. In the Agnihotra atmosphere was markedly bacteriostatic. In it more than 96% growth of bacteria was inhibited. Agnihotra atmosphere acted as a shield in which bacteria,especially the pathogenic types were not allowed to grow. In another set of trials conducted in the polluted slums, similar results were noted. It was observed that there is a definite reduction in aerial micro flora after performing Agnihotra.

Ecological Farming and Gardening:The fruits, vegetables and grains grown by this method are qualitatively better in texture, taste and size as compared to controlled farms where regular use of pesticides and fertilizers is done. Agnihotra atmosphere induces rapid seed germination and the Agnihotra ash is an effective fertilizer and helps in releasing soluble phosphate from the soil.

By performing agnihotra in the hospital everyday , I have a zero infection in our hospital in the postoperative cases and the requirement of antibiotics is minimal.

I am very sure that following this ancient Vedic wisdom can go a long way in preventing the spread of swineflu. The Vedas have very clearly mentioned the microbicidal effect of the Yagna fumes
